LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Lexington police arrested a man during a traffic stop after discovering he had a methamphetamine lab in his car.
Police say officers pulled over 35-year-old Raymond D. Estep around 2 a.m. Sunday for running a stop sign.
They said Estep seemed nervous. When they started asking questions, they say Estep told them he had a mobile meth lab in his car and that he didn't want them to get hurt by the chemicals.
A narcotics unit and meth lab clean up team were sent to the scene to secure and process the vehicle.
Estep was charged with manufacturing and possessing meth, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also has traffic violations.
